In NS6 you had the ability to enter report parameters before the report executed.  In NS7 the report executes as soon as you select it, and you can't make any changes to the report parameters until it has finished running.  This can be particularly frustrating when a report takes a very long time to run.

I have to agree with this one. In fact, I find most of the UI enhancement have slowed things down considerably. I had hoped the new console would be snapier but they seem to have taken 2 steps backwards!

I am currently build some very large reports and I have to wait about 5 minutes everytime I test the report. At one point I had a run away query and there was no way to edit it becuase it never finished running. I ended up having to export the report and fix the SQL in the XML then reimport. I think that is more like 3 steps back...
